The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few…

Three years ago, I went to a mystic retreat in France and stayed in a convent where a hundred acres of wheat fields grew in the back. The scene there was so beautiful that I was attracted to walk it and to stay there for meditation every day during that retreat. Continue reading →

Endings and Beginnings

What personal rituals do you have for the ending and the beginning of a new year? Do you throw things out which you are no longer using, or begin new projects or new resolutions with the start of a new year? Is this time of year just like every other time of year for you?

One of the practices that I have retained from my novitiate experience is taking time for a reflection day, looking back over the past year and looking ahead to hopes and dreams I have.

The promise and eager anticipation of Advent have always stirred my soul, and the songs of these weeks often reflect those feelings. But this year feels different. This time, Advent has felt for me like a time of doubt, upset, and confusion, reflecting the mood of our country, no matter on which side of the political fence one sits. Continue reading →

Finding My Voice

Giving Voice to my Values Post-Election

I’ve spent much of my life afraid to give voice to my values, beliefs and opinions or to even know what they are. By putting myself in teaching situations and speaking engagements, I’ve gained confidence in expressing myself, though it is still a struggle. Writing, however, has always been my safe haven for processing and unraveling my thoughts. But, something in me is starting to change as a result of feeling post-election blues. I can’t sit on the sidelines anymore and be silent.   Continue reading →
